Directions to Africa Café
African Café offers an African dining experience in the heart of Cape Town. Chef Portia has a passion for Africa food and she has a creative flair too. She and Jason started preparing food in their home in Observatory a number of years ago.
They converted the living room into a dining area. Their success led to them expanding to bigger premises – and when that grew too small they moved again!
The building on Buitengracht Street that they are now in, has various rooms that offer a wide range of seating arrangements – from tables for two to large tables for tour groups. Africa Café creates food that celebrates Africa’s diversity and rich tapestry of tastes and aromas.
The set menu is printed on a ceramic jug – and it can be purchased to take home after the meal. This unique idea adds to the unique dining experience that put this restaurant in a class of its own. All the dishes are served as appetiser portions. Each dish is from another part of Africa. And the great part of the experience – you can have more of the dishes you enjoy!
Ethiopian’s Zambossa (curried mince in fine pastry) & the Cape Malay mussel curry were some of my favourites. From Mozambique we enjoyed a peri-peri dip with Cassava Bread, Xhosa Imifino Patties (spinach and mealie meal patties) & Congo Salad with Jungle dressing. Basmati rice, lentils and noodles from Egypt arrived and Cheese and sim sim balls from Malawi were served too. Kenya added to our dining experience with a Kenyan blend of Coffee.
Africa is a continent that is alive with colour and texture. Africa Café mirrors that colourfulness with incredible décor – and magical lighting. Portia has a shop full of ceramics and hand-made jewelry that can be viewed on the right as you leave the restaurant.
